Tracking ISU and U.S. Figure Skating Events, Issues and Governance
The March 26, 2014 Chicago Tribune article ‘Figure skating boss proposes radical changes to sport’ included a release of his 7 major proposals for change in the sport of figure skating which he sent to all ISU Committee and Member voting representatives in advance of the June 2014 ISU Congress. These proposals should have all skaters, coaches, officials and fans of the sport shaking in their boots.
Particularly off the wall is his idea to do away with all short programs and short dances – across all disciplines.
Please go to Change.org and read, then sign the petition asking your Figure Skating Federation or Association to reject President Ottavio Cinquanta’s proposals for figure skating at the June 2014 ISU Congress. This petition explains why he should be given a vote of no confidence and then impeachment brought against him if he won’t resign. Go here, read and sign, then copy paste the url to the Petition page or the entire petition body into the appropriate email address for your federation/association listed at petition bottom. Thanks.
